Sunday with Dave: Tour Guide

“Tour Guide”

The question of visible and watched,
the reburrowing guilt of having violated
we the seen, the division
of who is indigenous to which path or stoop,
a random welcome,
a tension is not what is present,
more fight in questions,
the loaning, spilling into
who has taken over our meting out
impressions,
by which privilege
I can load up on coffered space?
and too much,
this is not easy
nor should it
be,
the leading of vacancies in my wondering
why I’ve agreed,
to be period,
unseeing focal
lean,
why should I care?
there are many who have stilled in their
witness,
I have been testified.
